Welcome to the Bonhomme Wrestling Club

The Bonhomme Wrestling Club was founded in 1976 by a group of dedicated parents of the Bonhomme Football Club (now Chesterfield Football). Since its inception, Bonhomme has earned the reputation of being one of the premier wrestling clubs in the State of Missouri and has 14 AAU & USA State Team Championships and hundreds of individual State Champions to its name! The club is comprised of youths between the ages of 6 and 15 years old that will ultimately feed dozens of St. Louis area high schools such as Lafayette, Marquette, Eureka, Parkway South, Northwest, CBC, Parkway West, Ladue, Parkway Central, Whitfield, Pacific, Wentzville, Rockwood Summit, and more.  If you would like to be a part of the future of Bonhomme Wrestling, please register online or contact a board member if you have additional questions.

    Friday, September 22, 2017

    EARLY REGISTRATION CLOSES ON SEPTEMBER 30th, so get signed up early at the reduced rate..October 1st is when the fees will increase..

    Bonhomme has 3 specialized programs that allow each kid to reach their full potential.  

    LITTLE BADGERS: this is an introductory program for those 7 and under to teach the foundational skills, body awreness, and mental toughness necessary to to succeed in this sport as well as every other sport.    The once  weekly practices are fast paced and game oriented.    THERE LIMITED SPOTS in LITTLE BADGERS SO THAT WE CAN GIVE EACH WRESTLER THE ATTENTION NEEDED.

    AAU:  This is where all Beginner/First Time wrestlers should start.   We divide the wrestlers into a BEGINNER room and an EXPERIENCED room.  This allows us to focus on the foundational skills and work on the skills that are needed to compete at the beginner level.

    USA: This is for wrestlers with 1 or more years of tournament competition that are looking to compete both locally as well as in some out of town tournament.  All USA wrestlers are expected to compete in the USA state wrestling series with Bonhomme as well.  

    Please contact us if you have any questions as to what program is the best fit for your wrestler..
